White Paper: Investing in a Business Engagement Ecosystem

While there are pockets of business engagement success across the state, this paper details strategies for California policymakers and workforce system stakeholders to consider as they continue to develop a 21st-century workforce system.

Investments such as the Strong Workforce Program are pivotal to strong collaboration among educational institutions, workforce development stakeholders and employers to create a more adaptable and responsive system.

You can help make sure Californians receive maximum benefit from these investments by actively supporting the development of  a business engagement ecosystem, one that ensures a coordinated approach by partner agencies to align outcomes with business and industry needs, resulting in expanded opportunities for job seekers and students.
